ACTION: Notice. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: EIA submitted an information collection request for extension as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension with changes to Form EIA–63C, Densified Biomass Fuel Report under OMB SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:24 Jun 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 29777 Control Number 1905–0209. Form EIA– 63C collects data on wood pellet fuel and other densified biomass fuel production, sales, and inventory levels from U.S. manufacturing facilities of densified biomass fuel products for the purpose of estimating densified biomass fuel consumption in the United States, as well as production, sales, and inventory at state, regional, and national levels. DATES: EIA must receive all comments on this proposed information collection no later than July 26, 2018. If you anticipate any difficulties in submitting your comments by the deadline, contact the DOE Desk Officer at 202–395–0710.

(4a) Changes to Information Collection: Respondents will no longer have to answer the following six questions: and to: EIA also removed the requirement to report quantity, characteristics, inventory, and revenue data on compressed fuel logs, bricks and briquettes from on questions 3.3, 3.4 and 4.1. Finally, the due date for annual respondents (small biomass fuel manufacturers having a capacity of less than 10,000 tons per year or planned facilities) to report is changed from February 1 to June 1 to coincide with the industry’s off-season and ease their reporting burden during the heating season which is their busiest time of the year. Respondents that need to file annually will only need to report limited data in Parts 1 and 2 of the form; (5) Annual Estimated Number of Respondents: 108; (6) Annual Estimated Number of Total Responses: 1,065; (7) Annual Estimated Number of Burden Hours: 1,467; (8) Annual Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Cost Burden: The cost of the burden hours is estimated to be $111,026 (1,467 burden hours times $75.69 per hour). EIA estimates that there are no additional costs to respondents associated with the survey other than the costs associated with the burden hours.

States, as well as production, sales, and inventory at state, regional, 
and national levels.

DATES: EIA must receive all comments on this proposed information 
collection no later than July 26, 2018. If you anticipate any 
difficulties in submitting your comments by the deadline, contact the

of the pellet extrusion machinery at this facility''
 Part 2. Question 2.6 ``What is the planned maximum annual 
production capacity at this facility''
 Part 2. Question 2.7 ``What is the planned total installed 
horsepower of the pellet extrusion machinery at this facility''
 Part 3. Question 3.2 ``In the reporting period, did the mill 
utilize any portion of the above feedstock for uses other than 
transformation into densified biomass products, such as to operate the 
mill, produce electricity (combined heat and power) or other beneficial 
use of energy produced (such as heating/cooling)''
 Part 4. Question 4.2 ``Export Port.''

    EIA also removed the requirement to report quantity, 
characteristics, inventory, and revenue data on compressed fuel logs, 
bricks and briquettes from on questions 3.3, 3.4 and 4.1.
    Finally, the due date for annual respondents (small biomass fuel
